A home with history. Don't all homes have history? If only they could talk.
First look at this 1920's home has one just wowed by the sheer size of it. The palatial columns, the curved windows on the corners, the upper porch, it's a work of art. Can you imagine the life it's seen?
Come with me as we "walk" inside. The front door leads us into a space with hardwood floors, a beautiful open staircase in its natural wood state. You'll notice lead glass windows, tall ceiling heights, extra thick trim and a beautiful old mirror that's original to the home. There is a large family room, a formal dining room, a full bathroom and eat in kitchen all on the main level.
Next we get a choice of staircases to the upper floors. One staircase is off the kitchen area, the other from the front room. The second level has a nice landing area that then splits off to five, nice sized bedrooms and a full bathroom. The hardwood floors continue on this level. There is a walk up attic with plenty of storage to make up the third level.
The home sits on a nice sized lot of 150 X 191. With 2816 sq. ft. of finished space inside.
Originally built at 303 South 2nd Avenue here in Washington, just a block away from our historic movie theater. The house was moved to its current location on North Iowa sometime in the 60's. Some of the history we know about this home is that it has a "sister" home.
Have you heard about the Brinton's? Just recently there has been a documentary made about Frank and Indiana Brinton. Saving Brinton is a film made here in Washington County and explains the Brinton's part in the entertainment industry.
Back to the home for sale at 1011 North Iowa. This home was built in 1920 for Peter and Eustacia (Stacy) Powellson, the sister of Indiana Brinton. Eustacia asked that every dimension of her home be two inches bigger than her sisters at 919 South Iowa.
A very unique history I would say. We would be honored to give you a personal tour of this home.
